It was Customer Appreciation Day Friday as MEDIchair and the Castlegar Fire Department teamed up to raise money for the fight against Muscular Dystrophy.

It was lunchtime and all hands were on deck for this busy fundraiser.

Deanna Hooper of MEDIchair had a lot of products outside in the sunshine with great sale prices on items that make life easier for people of varying abilities.

Explained Deanna, “Customer Appreciation Day at MEDIchair, with the barbecue, is raising funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation. The foundation gets the entire amount.” Of the Castlegar Fire Department, said Deanna, “They’ve been running the whole barbecue, and in fact they’ve gone and recruited business all over and making deliveries for us.”

Captain (Chef) Ray Hackett was kept busy flipping burgers and it seemed all were having a great time.
